US rapper and singer Juice WRLD has publicly apologized to streamers who were affected by bans after his record label Interscope reportedly dealt DMCA takedowns accidentally.

Juice WRLD, real name Jared Higgins, has risen to prominence with his unique style of ’emo rap’, and has become a very popular artist for streamers playing music while they broadcast.

On June 22nd, a number of top streamers on Amazon owned platform Twitch logged in to discover their channels had been banned for 24 hours.

Professional Overwatch League player Jay “sinatraa” Won tweeted that he had been given the ban for listening to Juice WRLD specifically.

Due to the popular Friday Fortnite tournament, which participants are required to stream, host and organizer KEEMSTAR co-ordinated with Twitch and Interscope to have the bans lifted, just in time for the start of the tournament.

As of now, it is believed that all channels have been reinstated, with Interscope reportedly explaining that the strikes were made due to an automated system and were ‘accidental’, according to KEEMSTAR.

And on June 23rd, Juice WRLD himself addressed the situation via Twitter, apologizing and saying he will work to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

Although technically it is not permitted to play copyrighted music or to cover copyrighted songs on stream, Twitch and the record labels very rarely enforce the rule.

There is a library of music which Twitch has licensed to be played on stream, which can be found at

For now though, it looks like streamers can continue to play Juice WRLD’s music without fear of bans or other actions from Twitch or Interscope.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
